Food versus atmosphere 1/22/2007

We went to Crush for a friend's birthday the other night and had a marvelous time. We all ended up getting the 7-course tasting menu and I will say that if you're going for this then expect to spend almost double the amount of your meal for all the wines that go with it along with tax and tip. The 7-courses were listed as $85 per person and with tax and tip I spent double that for each person (I paid for dinner). That makes for a pricey night. If you want to get to know Crush and plan on going back frequently then take my advice and go with an appetizer and entree along with maybe a bottle of wine or whatever your beverage of choice is and save your money to go back often. The dinner was amazing and we enjoyed every item - including desserts. I will say that Brandon was a wonderful server and he catered to our birthday boy's food requirements very well - working with the kitchen to give him a great experience. I was impressed by the variety of the wines (we had 2 from Greece) and the quality of the food. Many folks have slammed the restaurant's interior design but I loved it. Most of the furnishings seem to be of European design and I think mostly French contemporary. I loved the style personally. The folks that don' t like the modern chairs must all be people with small butts. My boyfriend has a narrow backside and he was uncomfortable - I'm a bit more J-Lo and I was doing just fine. :) I could have possibly changed with our b-day boy because he didn't like the upright nature of the booth seating. My biggest complaint is that the space is so small (a converted craftsman house) that the crowds that come here (many with no reservations) are clustered in the foyer which is right on top of the kitchen bar seating and it flows into the dining area. Perhaps they can get a permit from the city to expand the entrance to make a nicer entry and waiting area. more
